From the Playing Field to the Stage, Central Catholic offers something for everyone.
In the Pennsylvania Junior Academy of Science, an individual student designs and performs an experimental study of his choosing within the area of Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Earth Science, Psychology, or Computer Science. He then presents his findings in a 10 minute oral presentation to a panel of judges at the Region 7 (Western PA) competition, generally held in February. If the student receives a first award (not a first place in relation to his fellow participants, but an indication of excellent work), he then may choose to present his findings at the state competition, generally held in mid May at Penn State University. A number of special awards, including cash, partial scholarships, admission to prestigious science camps, and plaques are also presented to some of the more outstanding competitors. Related programs open to PJAS students are: * Pittsburgh Regional Science & Engineering Fair * Penn State Science Symposium * Science Olympiad * Science Bowl * Super Bowl of Problem Solving * Environathon * Chemistry Olympics and Individual Research Experience.
